Hey everyone,

Sometime late on 2/13, the web hosting company did some updates that disabled the forum. I believe this was a result of some libraries on the webserver being updated beyond the version supported by the forum software installation.

I've updated the forum software to the latest version, which seems to have everything back up and running again and happy with all the various versions.

Please let me know if there are any issues - especially with notification emails which required a bunch of custom PHP code to get up and running before, I am worried the update may have wiped that out.

Allright, looks like the custom code is re-enabled and notifications should be working again.

Aha, so that was it. I thought my eyes were failing me as there were no messages on the forum.
Anyway, thanks for the work in keeping the forum running - much appreciated!
